Whether you're Casting at home or traveling somewhere new, there are three key elements to remember when choosing and setting up a room:
Be Mindful of Noise
Choose a quiet room with minimal echo. Turn off fans, close windows and avoid sitting next to loud air conditioning/heating vents.
Keep the Focus on You
Backgrounds should not be a distraction but avoid a blank white wall. Get creative by using branding, wall art, bookshelves or other props to bring in your personality and look professional.
Camera at Eye Level
Whether you’re using an internal or external webcam, make sure your webcam is in front of you and at eye level. This will avoid participants looking up your nose or at the ceiling. An easy way to do this is to place your device on a stack of books and adjust the height accordingly.
Strongest Light in Front
The strongest light source always needs to be in front of you. If there is too much light behind you, the participants will only see a silhouette. Also, utilize natural light if you have it - looking at a window can provide an even distribution of light across your face.
